Strawberry fruits require appropriate storage technology to maintain post harvest quality. In order to improve the shelf-life and to reduce the decrease of qualitative and nutraceutical characteristics the effects of different packaging conditions were observed comparing biobased and polypropylene perforated films. Sample units of 0,250 Kg strawberries cv. Envie2 flowpacked have been stored under two different conditions: in cool room at +2°C for 96 hours (like in an ideal supply chain) and in a cool room at +2°C for 48 h followed by storage at room temperature (+20°C) up to 96 hours from start. Fruits packed with biobased film and stored at +2°C showed the better results to preserve the qualitative traits maintaining the best headspace composition (%) for all the storage time. © 2008 IFRJ.
